Joshua Christian Kojo King (born 15 January 1992) is a Norwegian professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Everton and the Norway national team.

King was signed by Manchester United from Vålerenga in 2008. After loan spells with Preston North End, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Hull City and Blackburn Rovers, he signed permanently with Blackburn in January 2013, before switching to Bournemouth in May 2015. In February 2021, in a deadline day deal, he returned to the top flight with a move to Everton.

After representing Norway at under-15, under-16, under-18, under-19 and under-21 levels, King made his senior international debut against Iceland in 2012, and scored his first international goal against Cyprus later that year.

On 1 February 2021, the last day of the winter transfer window, Everton announced the signing of King from Bournemouth for a nominal fee. He agreed to a deal until the end of the season with an option to extend the deal.

King made his Everton debut away against Leeds United on 3 February 2021, coming on in the 87th minute. Everton won the game 2–1. King returned to face former club Manchester United in a 3–3 draw on 6 February 2021 at Old Trafford in which he won a free-kick right at the last moment of the match after coming on as a substitute and Everton scored as a result.
